1C -$1 1861 PR SET PCGS PR64-PR66 ALL CAC
This is the epitome of what a matched GEM original set is. It blows our minds this set even exists. It is only 159 years old!
1C 1861 PCGS PR64 CAC. A serious borderline PR65. The mirrors are strong and there are NO problems. There is a little toning. The eye appeal is great!
PCGS 70, NGC 19, CAC 11. The last one to sell realized $2,880 in February 2018 and the current Collectors Universe value is $3,600. PCGS # 2256.
3CS 1861 PCGS PR65+ CAMEO CAC. We cannot stress enough the exceptional ULTR HIGH quality this coin is. Deep mirrors beam from all over. The mirrors have bold clarity and are clean. When you twirl them they offer the super “watery” roll. Both sides have a flaming blue/green/purple color. WOW!
PCGS 2, NGC 3, CAC 1. This is the only PR65 + CAM graded, and is NOT the PCGS/CAC PR65 that sold for $11,163 in July 2013. PCGS # 83710
H10C 1861 PCGS PR65+ CAMEO CAC. Incredible everything! Deep mirrors boldly beam from all over. The mirrors have bold clarity and are super clean. A circular pattern of totally original blue/green/violet is matched to all the other coins. Miss Liberty and the details boldly stand out with thick frost and sharp strikes. The eye appeal is mesmerizing!
PCGS 8, NGC 0, CAC 4. There are two in PR65+, the other one selling in June 2013 for $3,080 and the current PCGS Price Guide value is $3,950. PCGS # 84444.
10C 1861 PCGS PR65 CAC. You can clearly see the mirrors under the toning here. The mirrors do have lots of flash. This time the colors are more spread out but remain the same. There is some contrast. Miss Liberty and the details are sharply struck and have thick frost. The eye appeal is really nice!
PCGS 13, NGC 9, CAC 5. The last one sold in December 2013 for $1,704 and the current PCGS Price is $1,950. PCGS # 4754.
25C 1861 PCGS PR64 CAC. VERY HIGH END quality. We used a strong glass and only found a few light scattered lines. The mirrors definitely have blast and are pretty clean. The toning is more around the devices and is the same as on the other coins. Miss Liberty and the details are pinpoint sharp in strike and have thick frost. The eye appeal is excellent!
PCGS 36, NGC 23, CAC 3. No CAC approved example has sold in auction. The PCGS Price Guide value is $1,800. PCGS # 5557.
50C 1861 PCGS PR65 CAC. This coin is both SUPER HIGH END and is a borderline Cameo. The mirrors are ultra clean and are highly reflective. The colors are a little lighter here and swirl all over both sides. Miss Liberty and the details are sharply struck and have a ton of frost. The eye appeal of this coin is remarkable!
PCGS 12, NGC 17, CAC 5. The last one to sell realized $5,170 in our October 2017 Regency Auction and the current Collectors Universe value is $4,750. PCGS # 6415.
$1 1861 PCGS PR64 CAMEO CAC. WOW! This piece is picture perfect. And its SUPER HIGH END TOO! If you expect bold flash, this coin has it. And it has awesome clarity of the mirrors too.
Most of the colors form a huge crescent on the right side of the coin. Here violet and gold lead the way. There is no question this coin is matched to all the others. Miss Liberty and the details are thickly frosted and have full strikes. The eye appeal is awesome!
PCGS 14, NGC 6, CAC 7. No CAC-approved example has ever sold via auction and the current Collectors Universe value is $7,700. PCGS # 87004. As a single coins, there is no question in our minds this piece would sell for much more.
